    Isn't it better than not being able to level them at all in prepatch like it was in original TBC?

    Blizzard said they were giving people time to level their blood elves and draeneis so they could join their friends in Outland. 2 weeks is absolutely not enough time for the average person with a life to level from 1 to 58.

    I would be quite surprised if June 1st was true and we only get a couple of weeks pre-patch.

    Well you can't play the game if you aren't level 58 at least...

    Classic it's not about the end game. It's about the journey to 60.

    The journey to 60 lasted me 6 days played. I have 95 days played in classic.

    Wanna do the math here?

    Keep in mind they're releasing it as 2.3.5 which also significantly cut the exp requirements for leveling 1-60. With that significant cut, 2 weeks -is- technically a lot of time.

    Isn't the idea of a Classic release to preserve the game as much as it was back then for it to be as closely as #nochanges as possible?
    In that way why are people advocating that 2 weeks is not enough time to level a Belf or a Dranei? When TBC launched you had no time beforehand to level them up. The fact that they are doing that doesn't it go against the spirit of it all?
    Is it #nochanges and no way else, except when it suits me?

    Its super odd how they arent adressing this leak at all.

    I mean i get it if it was just some outside source because you could always brush that off. But on their own launcher and to then just ignore it.

    its really odd to me

    No the nochanges crowd was a vocal minority. It was indeed the idea with classic vanilla but people have accepted that the game is better and more authentic with changes

    Oof, I really expected a concrete release date announcement yesterday and all we got was "in the next months"... this doesn't make me hopeful that we'll see TBC June. The June 1 release date is out of question now, if that would be it, we would have heard it yesterday instead of "in the next months".

    Fair enough. #somechanges is the way to go then.

    That is your problem, what is the rush?
    It is a fact that classic or vanilla was about exploring Azeroth, not about end game content so much.

    How was it a rush? Why can you decide what is classic for other people? I'm not saying leveling isn't part of it. For me it was barely 5% of the journey.

    I don´t decide it, it is the way the game was created. You can literally check interviews with the very creators of the game, where they say so lol. The game was not intended towards end game, end games was originally just a part of it.

    But many has money to pay for a 58 boost xD

    The 58boost is but the first babystep of a long line of planned features for blizz to milk the playerbase for money while at the same time claiming to "keeping the spirit of the game" while actually ruining it completely.

I know several people that will be pissed because of this, personally, I dont mind at all though. And since this is wow and MMO-C I figured I would start the negativity for yall this time around.
    I can think of a number of ppl that are very happy because of this. Infact, two groups are probably very happy right now.

    The first group is blizzard wich are planning to strong-arm players into buying a 58boost.

    The other group are all the mages who plan to make bank boosting desperate people who has no other way to reach 60 "in time" than being boosted.
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

    Such a pity! They should've just stuck to the original TBC release schedule and made them available on day 1 of TBC..

    The boost doesn't work on the new Races. So your point is wrong straight away.

    That'd be fine by me. But, of course, adjustments would have to be made. Yeah, every tom, dick, harry and their grandmothers weren't loaded with gold and raid gear during original release, so guess what that would mean? That's right, remove most gold and gear to match original realistic numbers. Wait, it didn't end there. Majority of players didn't reach 60 during actual vanilla, so that would need to be the case again. Not only would many lose gold and gear, levels would be gone too. 1% or so are allowed naxx clear.

    So, mirror of original release sure has my vote. That's even better way of letting belves and draeneis close the massive gap there currently is.
